The Best Of, 2007-2017!

The Best of 2007-2017!

Well, almost all of them!  To say that there have been a lot of favorites (both yours and ours) throughout the last 10 years is quite an understatement!  Putting this list together was a very trippy trip down memory lane, with so many “oh, I love that one!” and “what about this one?!” We could have gone on and on. And on.  We dove deep down into the archives, and we hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane as much we did.

Another Plucky Surprise!!!

 

THANK YOU!!!

First of all, thank you guys SO much for joining us this past Friday!  Was that fun, or what?!  In fact, it was so fun, we think the weekend festivities need to continue on through Monday to ease us right on into the week after a long holiday weekend!

What can you expect to see?  Here’s just a few things we have up our sleeves and who knows what else:

FREE SHIPPING on all DOMESTIC orders
and FREE SHIPPING on orders of
$75 or more INTERNATIONALLY!!!

_______

 

 

  • Winter QPP!  With winter right around the corner, it’s that time, again.  Time to pre-order your favorites from this palette!  How fun will these colors be on some of the new bases?!  Hibernation and Parka…I’m looking at you!
_______

  • Luxe Club sign-ups!  Yep, that’s right!  Friday was Classics and now it’s Luxe’s turn!  If seeing the last few installments of this Club has given you a case of the “I really gotta have that”, now’s your chance!  Remember, the Luxe Club lets you have a little bit of luxury delivered to your door every 2 months, with the payments broken up affordably into 2 payments.
_______
  • One hit wonders!  Yes, there will be one hits across the bases from fingering weight on up!  Plus, Bungalow One Hits!
Just like this past Friday, please keep your eyes peeled to Instagram, Ravelry (Locked Announcement thread, the fast moving Update thread and Wishlist thread – Hayley, Seth and I will be chit chatting away and helping and granting as many wishes as we possibly can, in real time!) beginning Monday, November 27th 9:00 a.m. EST, going throughout the day.

An important note: Since all of the yarn available in Monday’s update (and all other subsequent Ready To Ship or Instant Gratification updates) has been carefully inventoried, dyed, and is ready to be shipped, we will no longer be able to accommodate requests for cancellations or changes of orders.  Please be absolutely certain that you fully intend to purchase and receive any yarn you check-out with from the update.  It is administratively very difficult and impedes shipping times to allow for these changes. Thank you for your understanding!

If there is something else you’d love to see in this update? Please hop on over to the Wishlist Thread on Ravelry!  We’re happy to grant as many wishes as we possibly can!

Warmly and with our sincere thanks,
pluckysignature-sarah-smaller

We introduced a slew of new colorways at the Shindig, and yep, you guessed it, some of them will be making their way onto Reserve across bases, too.




And now, for the really big news!!  We are over the moon to present you with 2 of the 3 brand new bases that made their debut this past weekend!  Introducing, Trusty Fingering…yep, Trusty’s little sister (375 yards 100% Merino SW) and Snazzy (195 yards, 80.20 Merino. Cashmere)…Aran weight and oh, so squishable!  While it’s true that a sampling came back home with us, you can be sure they will all be coming out to play at a Blog update soon!

It’s Fall QPP Part 2!!!

 

It’s Fall QPP Time, Part 2!!!

It’s time for the re-release of the Fall QPP and this time, for a little extra fun, the color(s) of the month for October will be added to the mix. To us, this QPP embodies all things Fall, and of course, as with other QPP’s, each color is designed to mix and match with other colors in the collection – like Garanimals (ha!!) for knitting and crocheting!  And since you gave them so much love last time, we are pleased to include Time Change, Crisps & Crumbles, Needle in a Haystack, and Bonfire Season again!!

Please note: If you have your heart set on Fall QPP colors in the quantities you want, this is the time. While there may be a few QPP colors in the marketplace at the Shindig, we have not dyed across the colors and bases for the QPP like we did last year for the Glamping with Plucky event.

It’s Going To Be One BIG PARTY!!!

We can’t believe the Plucky 10th Anniversary Celebration is just two short weeks away!

We are so excited as we count down the days to when we will see so many of you. It is going to be one BIG party that includes knitting with mimosas, fashion shows, karaoke and has been 10 years in the making.

The reserved spots may have sold out, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still come! Even if you weren’t able to get a full entry as an official Shindigger, you can still book a room at the Amway Grand Plaza or drop by for lots of great free events (see full schedule of events for registered and non-registered guests HERE) including a mimosa bar;  coffee, tea & pastry buffet; and the Plucky Marketplace. Toss in all the favorite parts of the past few Shindigs and this year, we have no words other than One Big Party to describe what we have in store for you!

We hope you will allow us to share our love of what we do with the folks we do it for! And that’s YOU! Please join us as we celebrate 10 years of laughter, love, adventures in color, unruly hair, crazy dogs, and wonderful friendships!!

Without you, our dear Plucky friends, we would not have this beautiful community to celebrate, so whether you join us in person or in spirit, our 10th Anniversary Party promises to have fun for everyone!

Mad Fusion!

Mad Fusion!

We are delighted to introduce the latest Plucky Knitter Designs pattern…Mad Fusion!!  Anything goes with this beauty, so, the only rule is to have fun and mix those bases with wild abandon!!  This garter triangle shawl, knit on size US 13 needles (with the yarn held double, or triple, depending on what bases you decide to mix) from the bottom up is quick, mindless knitting at its finest.  The squish factor is off the charts with this one, and the finished piece is oh so wearable!  Get this on your needles ASAP and trust us, your Fall wardrobe will thank you!

IG (Instand Gratification) Guidelines

 

Yarn available in an IG (Instant Gratification) update is on hand and ready to ship. This means we are not be able to accommodate changes to orders once they have been placed. Likewise, we would respectfully ask that you not place an order then request it to be canceled. IG’s happen in real time and if you have removed an item from the sale, it is no longer available for someone else.

Due to the nature of IG update’s (yarn we have on hand and that is ready to ship) it may be possible that multiple skein orders will not match as closely as those that are dyed to order. We will do our best, but please know that if ordering several of the same skeins, there is a chance of receiving different dye lots.

One last note! Unfortunately, there is a possibility that we may make an error in counting, entering and packaging these orders. If we do, please know that we will refund that item immediately upon discovery and/or will be sure to let you know if we might be able to offer a substitution!

Narragansett Gray Update

 

Ten Years!

Ten years.  As I type this, I can hardly believe it’s true!  This June marks 10 years since I started dyeing yarn in my little cottage kitchen and Plucky Knitter began.  While there have been changes (not to mention a few studio moves) along the way, what inspired me back then inspires me still today…an all-consuming passion for fiber, texture and, of course, color! Always color!  Along with this passion, one thing that has never changed is our dedication to and gratitude for all of you!  We quite simply cannot thank you all enough for allowing us to serve you!

In true Plucky tradition, this June, we will be kicking off the festivities to celebrate this special anniversary, and to celebrate you!!  The party starts on June 1st, when we will have FOUR colors available at 17% off from 11:00 a.m. Thursday to Noon EDT on Friday!

 

 

We are beyond excited to offer three oldies, but goodies…Narragansett Gray (the Color of the Month for June!), Before You Go-Go and Princess Phone!  All three of these colors hold a special place in our hearts, and they are equally fabulous on their own or all together!  For this offering, we are also delighted to introduce a brand new Small Batch colorway, It’s Your Party!  This little beauty features delicate speckles that perfectly accent all three!

Mix n’ Match!

 

Mix n’ Match!

I LOVE to mix and match!  Dishes, glassware, linens, throw pillows, texture, and pattern. I could go on.  And on.  But, when it comes to mixing and matching yarn, well that’s when it gets especially fun!  I never cease to be entertained by the endless combinations of mixing both colors and bases.  There has been some wonderful pattern inspiration popping up on Ravelry this week that you may be eyeing, we sure are!  So, we thought it would be a splendid idea to have an update where you get to have all the fun, and mix and match ‘til your heart’s content!

 

 

Here are just a few of the patterns that have caught our eye this week as well as a few of the Mix N’ Match combos we love!

The Nifty Update!

The Nifty Update!

Is anyone else out there scratching their head, wondering how it is possible that it’s nearly April?!  The arrival of Spring (break!) has us jonesing for light and airy knits, and let me tell you; we have a positively brilliant brand spanking new base to share with you!

  
We are delighted to introduce the newest base in the Plucky lineup….Nifty!  Nifty is a beautiful 4 ply fingering weight yarn, comprised of a blend of 60% Merino, 30% Cashmere and 10% Nettle Fiber, with 310 yds per 115 g skein.  Nifty is priced at $30 USD/skein. The merino/cashmere blend keeps it oh so soft and provides a lovely drape, while the small amount of nettle fiber gives the tiniest bit of sheen and textural finish to your fabric.  This unique base is simply perfect for all of your Spring and Summer knits! We’re rounding out the update with a handful of our other favorite bases for warm weather knits and a selection of colorways that we love for Spring and how they translate onto the various fibers.


If you find yourself in need of some pattern inspiration, we’ve got you covered, these patterns caught our eye and we think they’d be splendid in Nifty!

For the Love of Scotland Update

 

Hayley and I are so excited to be attending Edin Yarn Fest this weekend!  Although we are not attending EYF as vendors, we are just as thrilled to be attending as knitters and students! I’m sure it’s no surprise that we have been daydreaming about all things Scottish. Before we even set foot in mainland Scotland (Shetland already has a piece of our heart) we’ve been inspired by all things green, gray, dark, and broody. And, be still my heart, the plaids!

So, that can only mean one thing! We are happy to bring to you an update full of sixteen (SIXTEEN!) new “Small Batch” colorways inspired by Scotland. This Sunday evening, March 12th at 6:00 PM EDT (don’t forget, we spring forward this weekend here in the States!) on the Plucky Blog you will find a host of Small Batch Scotland inspired yarns on assorted bases. If you are new to our Small Batch yarn, please take a moment to read about it on our blog!

Blue Grey Club Update

Raise your hand if you love gray/grey/gris…and blue!

I LOVE gray.  Oh, I know what you’re saying.  “But, it’s just gray.” Let me tell you; it’s not only one shade of gray, it’s all.of.the.grays. Cool, clear grays; broody, layered grays; grays with the slightest hint of another color; and my latest obsession, gray with speckles!  But, do you know what I adore almost as much as gray?  Yep, you guessed it; blue!  If I’m not knitting with gray, it’s a good bet that some shade of blue has found its way on to my needles.  So, I think it’s high time for the latest Blues and Grays Club offering!  Along with a handful of our favorite club offerings from the past, we’ve put together a laundry list of coordinating and contrasting colors from the Plucky repeatables catalog.  There’s something for everyone here!  And, don’t forget about the mystery option for both gray AND blue!!

Can We Talk A Little About Small Batch?!

Meet our newest Small Batch…

 

 

Can we talk a little bit about Small Batch?!

We decided on the name ‘Small Batch’ because it was the perfect description of how these skeins of art come about. They are done in very small batches with each and every skein having the various colors applied one at a time. It’s a time-consuming and labor intensive process but one that we’ve come to love! It allows us to bring you our art in every skein, making for fun and truly unique projects!

Something we ask you to please bear in mind (and this is true for hand-dyed yarn aside from Small Batch) is that no one skein will be exactly like another. As an example, one skein of Small Batch may have more green speckles or be more saturated with all of the colors comprising that particular Small Batch colorway, while another from the same ‘batch’ may have less saturation, be more speckled or have more blue than the one that was created directly beside it. Again, it’s just the nature of hand-dyed, artisan yarn and each skein is truly unique.

What you may see in a glamour shot or a project pic of a Small Batch may be very close to what you receive or it may be very different in its placement of colors on the skein. These differences are not quality issues. True Small Batch, or hand-dyed yarn, is inherently unique to each skein and it would be next to impossible to replicate every speckle of each colorway represented in a skein of Small Batch. Often times, skeins that appear significantly different from one another in the skein, may look more matched once they are wound (happens to me all the time) and the opposite may also be true.

Please know that if you order more than one skein of the same Small Batch colorway, on the same base, we always do our best to provide you the closest matches possible, just as we do with multiples of our traditional colorways. We simply ask that you keep in mind the unique characteristics that make Small Batch what it is and know that each skein is one-of-a-kind!

You are unique, your knits are one of a kind and so is your small batch!

Thank you so much!

New!! Yakpaca!

Yakpaca-Logo-1

A very happy Friday of Super Bowl weekend to one and all! I have something kind of exciting to share with you!

First things first. Reserve will be getting a little maintenance (this being the first step in an ongoing process) early next week, so we will be shutting the doors for a few days starting Monday.

But, before that happens, we have something pretty fabulous to share with you this weekend! Bungalow is in the house…..think sweater quantities across the colors, woohoo!! We adore this special, limited edition yarn. Reserve will be stocked this weekend with Bungalow, while supplies last. Anyone thinking spring knits? Get your Bungalow!

 

Bungalow Palette

Now. Drumrolll!!! We are unveiling something BRAND NEW this weekend on Reserve….introducing, Yakpaca!! This 50.50 yak/alpaca worsted weight yarn (our swatches produced 5sts/inch on a size US 8 needle) is really special.

Yakpaca. It’s pretty much everything, and more! Light, lofty and breathable with a fabulous hand and next to skin softness. It’s absolute perfection for sweaters, shawls, wraps, and smaller accessories like hats and mitts.

Hayley has already cast on for Loulou with it, and I am totally smitten with my Corner Brook! Yakpaca plays so nicely when it’s time to mix those bases! I’m mixing Yakpaca with Groovy for my Corner Brook and it’s just.so.good.

yakpaca name edit AD

 

Yakpaca ($29 per 250 yards per skein) is available in the following palette of natural colors: Beatnik (black! Still needs photo), Pinstripe, Nailhead, Going Gray, Paneling, Band Wagon, Bobbin, and Pitchfork. FYI. These colorways are exclusive to Yakpaca only. Thank you!

Happy Friday friends,

Flash Sale!

flashsalegraphic-promo-1-3

 

It’s our last sale of the year, and we are going out with a bang!  For this sale, we will be filling the shelves in Reserve to the brim with some especially nifty options, just for you!

So, without further ado, here’s all you need to know! 

As a thank you to all of you, this flash sale will feature FREE SHIPPING on everything.  What does everything include?!  Well for starters, we are positively giddy to offer Cachet, (our Aran weight 100% Cashmere; and just between us, it makes the most velvety soft fabric we’ve everfelt!) at the very special price of $54 per skein.  If your knitting plans have you in need of a workhorse yarn, we have that too!  Rustic will be available for $13 per skein.  This will be your last chance at Rustic, as it is to be discontinued.  We are also happy to offer a smattering of Sweater and Cozy! Imagine our delight when we organized the barn and found a box of Sweater!  Sweater and Cozy will be offered at their regular price of $25 per skein. We have selected a cohesive color palette for all of the bases, perfect for all of your colorwork plans. So mix and match with abandon!

Cozy and Cachet will be available in the following colorways:

flashsale-dec-2016-cozycachetcollage

flashsale-dec-2016-rusticsweatercollage

 

Keep and eye on Ox and his mystery matches in the Plucky App! He’s got some great ideas for knitting up your Rustic, Cachet, Sweater and Cozy!

And…because we just can’t help ourselves, we’ll have more One Hit Wonders!  All fingering, sport, DK, Worsted and Aran (across all Plucky bases, except Cashmere and Cachet) will be $15/skeinCashmere and Cachet OHW’s will be $40/skein.

Please note:  For this offering of one hit wonders, we will not be able to take requests and you may receive any of the Plucky bases. But, we guarantee they will be fun and help expand your base and color repertoire!

Thank you so very much for, well, everything. It is our sincere pleasure to serve you. We look forward to having you join us beginning Thursday, December 15th through the weekend, while supplies last in the Reserve for our last sale of 2016!

It’s Groovy being Cozy!

itsgroovybeingcozy-promo-1-1

We’ve fallen head over heals for Groovy, you too?  Well, guess what?!  It’s back in the house, and we couldn’t be more elated!  What makes Groovy so exquisite, you ask?  With its light and lofty hand, this 100% Aran weight cashmere makes some of the most luxurious fabric you can imagine.  Perfect for warding off those falling temperatures!

And then, there’s Cozy.  It’s a long time favorite, with a very loyal following and with good reason!  This velvety soft, DK weight Merino/Camel blend is perfect for both accessories and sweaters.  Hayley and I have selected a palette of colors that sing on both of these bases, including two new colorways.  We are pleased to introduce Winter Wonderland and Stone Cold!

Plucky Classics, A Yarn Club

It’s Sign-Up Time!

A Brand New Round of Plucky Classics

Sign-ups begin Sunday, November 20th at 9:00 a.m. EST, right here on the Plucky Blog!
We are super excited to open up the Plucky Classics subscription program for another round. We want to give everyone a chance to sign-up for something new, add to their existing subscription, or give the Classics program a whirl for the very first time!

We’ll be saying goodbye to Rustic and Sweater but rounding out the Traveler line-up with Traveler DK and Aran.

There may be months where we choose to draw from the same inspiration, but an entirely different colorway specifically for the bases of Crew, Oxford, Scholar, and Traveler. These four bases due to their unique fiber content/properties, take the dye differently than the others but you can be assured we’ll choose a colorway that make their uniqueness positively sing. And they will be inspired by the same ‘Classic’.

For those who aren’t really sure why we call it Classics, let me give you a little background. Hayley and I love old movies. The Classics. Or, at least those that we consider to be classics! Our idea of a perfect evening is to slip an old movie into the DVD player, make some popcorn, sit back with our knitting and lose ourselves in a movie. But, it’s not just the oldies that we consider Classics. Who doesn’t love a cheezy 80’s or a 90’s disaster movie?  Our tastes are eclectic, to say the least.  And, it’s from our personal list of classic movies that we draw our inspiration for the Classics subscription colors. We hope you will watch and knit with us!

Here is how the Plucky Classics subscription works:

If you are already a Classics subscriber, and you don’t want to change a thing with your current selections, you are golden and don’t need to do anything! Your subscription will continue on in the same manner.  If your subscription included one of the bases that are not featured in this round of Classics, you will have already received correspondence from customer service about your subscription.

  1. Sign-ups go live Sunday, November 20 at 9:00 a.m. EST on the Plucky Blog and will remain open as long as spots remain available.
  2. Upon enrollment (the date you subscribe, beginning Sunday, November 20), you will have the payment for your yarn deducted from your Paypal account. Subsequent payments will continue to be deducted, on the same date every other month, until you cancel your subscription.
  3. At the end of every month following the deduction (December), your Classics order will be shipped to you. You will continue to receive yarn, every other month, until you cancel your subscription (February, April, June and so on).
  4. The base and quantity you choose will be your subscription until you (or we) cancel your subscription. You may cancel your subscription at any time.
  5. Bases available are: Primo Aran, Primo Fingering, Primo Sport, Primo Worsted, Bello, Bello Worsted, Single, Feet, Trusty, SNUG Worsted, SNUG Fingering, SNUG (bulky), Crew, Oxford (original), Scholar (original), Sophisticate, Traveler (sport), Traveler DK, Traveler Aran and Plucky Cashmere and Cachet! A quick run-down of yarn details can be found on our website here.
  6. The Classics color each month is a surprise colorway and may be the same across all bases.There may be months where we choose to draw from the same inspiration, but an entirely different colorway specifically for the bases of Crew, Oxford, Scholar, and the Travelers! These four bases due to their unique fiber content/properties, take the dye differently than the others but you can be assured we’ll choose a colorway that make their uniqueness positively sing.
  7. If you would like a subscription for more than one base, you will need to make an additional subscription.
  8. Pricing, including shipping costs can be viewed here.  Please be sure to choose the appropriate selection (U.S. or International) based on your shipping address.

Plucky Classics is a great (and fun!) way to ensure you get a regular dose of Plucky yarn, especially if you find it difficult to make the updates (time zones, work schedules, etc.). Sign-up and yarn will magically appear in your mailbox every other month. Easy Peasy!

Please note: multiple orders will be combined for shipping, domestic and international.
Values for customs documents will be completed in accordance with the pricing shown on your PayPal receipt (i.e. One skein Primo Worsted shipped internationally will reflect a value of $33.00, etc. for customs). Again, thank you!

If you are new to Plucky we invite you to read all about our Blog Updates in the FAQs found HERE. Also, be sure to sign up for our eNewsletter and go to our Plucky Knitter app so you are always up-to-date on events and news.

Warmly,

Plucky Luxe – A Plucky Cashmere Club

LUXE CLUB

A Subscription To Luxury

Does the thought of cashmere regularly arriving at your door appeal to your longing for a bit of luxury now and then? Do you wish you had chosen cashmere as an option for your Classics subscription? Would your budget love a “set it and forget it” payment plan?

Subscriptions for the Plucky Luxe Club will open on Sunday, November 20 at 9:00 am EST here on the Plucky blog and will remain open until subscription spots remain.  Upon subscribing, you will be billed every month for one half of the total amount of your subscription*. Approximately 15 days after your second payment, your yarn will be shipped to you. This will result in six bi-monthly shipments, featuring a brand new color for each installment, and twelve monthly payments.

Let’s use November as our example. If you subscribe for three skeins of Cachet (US subscription), and using the chart below, your total cost for those three skeins will be $226. On the day you sign up (for example, November 20th), your PayPal account will automatically be billed for one half of your total, $113. On December 20th, your PayPal account will automatically be billed for the second half your of your total. And then on/about January 4th, you will be sent all three skeins of your Cachet in the brand new mystery Luxe color. This color will be exclusive to the Luxe Club and will not be available on any other base. And, Hayley and I will be sure to post pattern suggestions in the Luxe Club Spoiler thread, sharing ideas and chatting about what we think will look terrific in the newest color! You can be sure that each mystery color will positively sing on cashmere!

LUXE Subs
*All applicable postage/shipping fees will be reflected in your subscription total.

This is a subscription only club, with a one-time signup event. Your current subscription will continue, with no changes, until you (or Plucky) cancel. If you wish to modify your order, adding or subtracting skeins of Cashmere (sport) or Cachet to your subscription, you may do so now by cancelling your current subscription in PayPal or by choosing a new subscription during this sign-up event. If you are currently enjoying a Luxe Club subscription (for which you subscribed to last May), you can sit back and relax, knowing that you will continue to receive your regularly scheduled delivery of cashmere! If you are new to The Luxe Club, welcome! We are delighted to bring you this opportunity for a bit of every day luxury.

If cashmere is calling your name, sign ups are below! We will continue to hold the market open while supplies last. Thank you so much for your continued support for all things Plucky! Whether you sign up for one skein or a sweater quantity, everybody deserves a little cashmere in their life!

Please note that if you are currently receiving cashmere in your Classics subscription, your Classics will continue to be sent in the Classics color. The Luxe Club is separate and will be the only way to receive the exclusive Luxe Club colors.

Fondly,
Plucky-Sig-USE

Thank you Glampers!

Plucky Reserve!

shop-100616-320x518

Have you had an opportunity to take look at the Plucky Reserve lately? It’s getting really interesting over there! And, it promises to be a VERY lively place over the next few days!

As the yarn and all the remaining swag from Glamping arrives back in the barn (we subscribe to the ‘go big or go home’ and the ‘all that and the kitchen sink’ mentality when prepping for a show), we are inventorying and stocking it into the Reserve. We hope you will check regularly because this is going to be a constantly changing scene! Here you will find your favorite scummies, brights, tonals, greys, and SBs across so many of the Plucky bases. But, keep looking because there will also be mystery kits, project bags, Fringe Field bags, coffee mugs, pens, and on and on! About the only thing you won’t find will be a little black and white dog named Ox! He’s not leaving my side, nor I his. So glad to be home with my pups!

Please remember, items from the Reserve Shop are all ready to ship. Your Plucktober/vember project might be right there, waiting for you!

And, be sure to check out our newest base, Cambridge. This is the bulky version of Scholar and Oxford and is featured in the Oxbow blanket, Oh Deer pillow, and the stunning Rendezvous Peak cardigan by Amy Miller. Cambridge is available as a 1.0 version and a 2.0, just like his baby brothers, Scholar and Oxford. The 1.0 mutes the colors a bit, giving a more heathered and subdued look, and 2.0 is a much more vibrant take on the same color.

Plucky Fellas Club

PluckyFellas-2016-CLUB-LOGO

 

It’s time for the next installment of the Plucky Fellas Club!

All the Plucky Fellas colors are fella/guy/tomboy inspired, perfect for socks, sweaters or accessories we neutral loving guys and gals just love to wear.

~What will you find? Loads of neutrals with a kick, all on your choice of base(s) available below. And, we always spice it up a bit with a few special colors that will help the Fellas sing!

~This time, however – since we usually say “you’re not invited” to what some might consider more girly colors – we are going to add a few of our favorite lights and brights, as well as three colorways of our new Small Batch collection to accent the Fellas existing colorways, AND the new Fellas mystery colorway!

~If a Small Batch color is on your ‘must’ list, you will be able to order it as a single skein in your chosen amount. We have built a collage for each so that you can see the colors that we think pair beautifully with each. All the colorways shown will be sold as individual skeins.

All colorways available in this update are shown in the collages below:

Plucky Classics, A Yarn Club

It’s Sign-Up Time!

A Brand New Plucky Classics

This time it’s different!

Sign-ups begin Thursday, May 5 at 9:00 a.m. EDT, right here on the Plucky Blog
We are super excited to open up the Plucky Classics subscription program for another round. We want to give everyone a chance to sign-up for something new, add to their existing subscription, or give the Classics program a whirl for the very first time!

It’s an exciting round to join as we’re changing up Classics, in a VERY big way!

Although we are saying farewell to Sweater from the line-up, we’re bringing in Crew, Oxford (original), Rustic, Scholar (original), SNUG (bulky), Sophisticate, AND Traveler (sport).  Phew!!  We’ve never had this big of a shake-up to Classics and we hope you are as excited about it as we are!

There may be months where we choose to draw from the same inspiration, but an entirely different colorway specifically for the bases of Crew, Oxford, Scholar, and Traveler. These four bases due to their unique fiber content/properties, take the dye differently than the others but you can be assured we’ll choose a colorway that make their uniqueness positively sing. And they will be inspired by the same ‘Classic’.

For those who aren’t really sure why we call it Classics, let me give you a little background. Hayley and I love old movies. The Classics. Or, at least those that we consider to be classics! Our idea of a perfect evening is to slip an old movie into the DVD player, make some popcorn, sit back with our knitting and lose ourselves in a movie.

Won’t you watch and knit with us?

Here is how the Plucky Classics subscription works:

If you are already a Classics subscriber, and you don’t want to change a thing with your current selection, you are golden and don’t need to do a thing! Your subscription will continue on in the same manner.

A quick run-down of yarn details can be found on our website here.
  6. The Classics color each month is a surprise colorway and may be the same across all bases.There may be months where we choose to draw from the same inspiration, but an entirely different colorway specifically for the bases of Crew, Oxford, Scholar, and Traveler! These four bases due to their unique fiber content/properties, take the dye differently than the others but you can be assured we’ll choose a colorway that make their uniqueness positively sing.
  7. If you would like a subscription for more than one base, you will need to make an additional subscription.
  8. Pricing, including shipping costs can be viewed here.  Please be sure to choose the appropriate selection (U.S. or International) based on your shipping address.

Warmly,

The Dreamy Update!

A Very Dreamy Ready-To-Ship Update!

The very thought of Spring arriving (hopefully for good!) inspired a brand new colorway…Dreamy! And what better reason to offer you a ready-to-ship update next Tuesday! Hayley and I are especially excited about this, and we’ve put together a springy list of colorways and bases. Honey Do, CC Bloom and Ogre are so ridiculously cute together! And then Bleu, Ogre, CC – Gah! I love it! Bleu, The Hills Are Alive and Dreamy – oh my stars! And you know I love the combination of Classic Rock, Dreamy, Ogre and Gris. In fact, I just knit up that exact combination of colors in my Grannie Annie.

We are so excited Spiffy is back for a limited engagement! With a blend of 60% cashmere and 40% silk, Spiffy truly lives up to its name. This sport weight yarn brings tons of texture to your stitches. Spiffy is wonderfully soft, yet the silk gives it structure and strength as well, making it a terrific choice for lacy shawls and whisper soft sweaters. It will also mix beautifully with other bases to create that truly custom fabric you have been looking for.

Lodge will be available on both weights (worsted and fingering). Lodge is a blend of 60% merino, 20% cotton, 10% linen and 10% silk, making it an wonderful choice for all climates. Some lovely sweaters and accessories have already been knit up and people are falling in love!

Please join us on Tuesday, March 22nd at 12:00 P.M. EDT on the blog for our very dreamy ready-to-ship update! Please note: this update will ship Monday, March 28th.

Plucky Reserve – A NEW Way to Shop Plucky Yarn

______________

  PRESENTING…

PLUCKY RESERVE

______________

We are so excited to announce something new here at Plucky! Beginning this Friday, February 5th, 2016 we present to you Plucky Reserve. We have listened to you and so appreciate your feedback. For some time now, we have diligently been working behind the scenes to provide a new way to have Plucky available…another buying style that expands the availability for our diverse customer base. One of our greatest priorities has been to find a way to reach those of you who might find the blog updates inconvenient or Etsy sales a little too invigorating. And, to all of you…sometimes you just want a skein of insert your favorite base or color here. All these things have led us to the addition of our new shop – Plucky Reserve!

Part of the fun of Plucky Reserve is that it will be ever-changing! The quantities, bases, and colorways available will be ever changing – you never know what hidden gems you may find in the shop!

Within the Plucky Reserve shop, you will be able to see the bases, the colors and the number of skeins available. We will restock the shop as inventory permits and our hope is that you will check back often to see what we have posted. Who knows what surprises you’ll find!

The offering will be similar (though not exactly) to the way in which Plucky Swag is offered in the Plucky website. We are now ready to build upon that shopping experience with the addition of a constantly changing selection of yarns.

So, let’s say it’s sometime Friday, Saturday, etc., and you are in your pajamas watching the Late Late Show. Just out of curiosity you decide to take a little peek into the Plucky Reserve shop. And, well lookie there! Three skeins of High Cotton on Sweater in stock, and that is exactly what you have been looking for! Woohoo! Or, you might be new to Plucky yarns and be delighted to quietly purchase a lone skein on a base you have been thinking about trying. Here is that opportunity!

A few important items to keep in mind…

Plucky Reserve will not replace our pre-order blog updates, Classics, other clubs or even RTS (Ready To Ship) updates – it’s just a new way to shop! These updates are still the best way to get exactly what you want! We absolutely love to custom dye just for you in the quantities you need – for those projects you’ve had in mind and to make sure you have the quantity, colorway, and base your heart desires for that perfect Plucky project!

Plucky Reserve was designed with you in mind! It is the perfect opportunity for those new to Plucky who may find the blog updates a bit confusing or the fast paced Etsy Instant Gratification updates intimidating at first. It’s also for those that want to try a new base before committing to a sweater quantity, or need a quick skein (or several) to whip up a hat or give as a gifts.

Plucky Reserve yarns are not OHW’s (one hit wonders). These are all the same Plucky yarns and colors you are accustomed to.

• While it does not happen often and although there may be multiple skeins and even some sweater quantities in the same color and base, there could be slight variations due to the skeins being dyed at different times. Should you order multiples of a colorway on the same base, and there are matching skeins available, we will always do our best to send you the best matches available.

• Shipping of your Plucky Reserve yarn will be within (4) business days after placing your order. The shipping rates that you are accustomed to during our regular updates will apply.

• Due to careful inventory procedures, we will not be able to change or cancel an order once it has been placed.

• Quantities are limited and will change frequently, but you’ll be able to see precisely what is available at that particular moment. Be sure to check back often!

• Please note: There are no guarantees regarding predictability, availability, quantity, or restocking frequency. You can be sure, however, we will keep the Reserve stocked the best we can. Also, there will be no advance notice, and sales will be limited to stock on hand. And, this is exciting(!!), there may be one-of-a-kind or seasonal items in the shop as time allows.

• As with all things new, there may be a couple of hiccups along the way. Thank you for joining us as we venture into this new shopping experience. Please bear with us as we work out any kinks that may come up along the way!

We are so excited to bring you another way to experience Plucky!

As always, we are happy to help you! If you have any questions, please reference our FAQ or email us at customer service and we will do our best to serve you.

FAVORITES OF 2015 – Our last pre-order update of the year!

Over the years, hearing the silky voice of radio dj’s (Casey Kasem, Dick Clark, Rick Dees, etc.) as they took us on a musical journey to review the year’s Top 40 Hits always seemed the perfect way to close out a year. Hearing all of the favorites we might have forgotten about as the months brought in new releases and with that, new favorites, it was great to be reminded of a few that may have dropped off the radar!

With that in mind, we thought it would be fun to look back and see what your favorites (and ours!) and some of your most requested colorways were in 2015. This will help us put together a rocking “playlist” for our “Goodbye, 2015!” and countdown to 2016 party!  It’s the last update of the year, you guys!  It’s a little bittersweet so let’s have some fun! So, what was your favorite colorway of 2015?

This Blog Update is going to be full of your most requested colors and bases – your favorites, our favorites – and will include some of the new favorites, like Grumpy Old Sailor (he sure made an impression on all of us)! Who remembers buying a 45-rpm record (I think there’s an entire generation out there who have never even seen a 45 rpm record!) and finding something interesting on the B side?  Well, our version of the B side will be those colors and bases you post in the Wishlist thread over the next few days.

Here is a sneak peek of the colorways you can expect to see at this last update to send us off into 2016:

Here’s a taste of what to expect for bases in this update, but remember; the lists of favorite colors & bases aren’t finished just yet! Be sure to keep an eye on the Update News & Announcement thread in our Ravelry group as the weekend progresses to find out what other favorites will be added!

  • Cashmere
  • Cachet
  • Crew
  • Feet
  • Oxford
  • Primo Aran
  • Primo Fingering
  • Primo Sport
  • Primo Worsted
  • Scholar
  • Single
  • Snug
  • Snug Fingering
  • Snug Worsted
  • Sophisticate
  • Traveler
  • Traveler DK
  • Trusty

Another fun addition to this update will be the option to pre-order NEW Plucky Totes and Project Bags with our new collage graphic on them. You can pick from the Bases Design in grey, or the Colors Design in pink, blue or green!

Sunday, December 20th at 8:00 pm, EST
and Monday, December 21st at 9:00 am, EST at the Plucky Blog
*This Update will include FREE SHIPPING! If your order is domestic, it will ship for free. International transactions of 2 or more skeins within the same transaction will also ship for free. Unfortunately, at this time we will not be able to combine multiple international orders for free shipping. Any single skein international transactions will include shipping costs.

So, what was your personal favorite of 2015? Please help us finalize the list of colors and bases for this (and every) update. Your input in the Wishlist thread is extremely helpful! Can’t recall offhand what you may have seen in the early updates of 2015? Be sure to download the Plucky Knitter app where you will find a huge collection of photos of Plucky colors, listed by name and color family, as well as color pairings that Hayley and I find work particularly well with all of our favorites.

This will be the last pre-order update of 2015, so your purchases will ship according to usual time-frames and will be headed your way the end of the third week in January, 2016. We hope 2015 was kind to you and we thank you so much for your warmth and friendship! As a quick housekeeping note, we will be off-grid (lights out at the barn) and take a bit of down time with family and friends. Although the barn may be dark after we get all the things shipped to you we promised before year-end, you can rest assured that we are plotting an planning a fun and festive 2016!

If you are new to Plucky we invite you to read all about our Blog Updates in the FAQs found HERE. Also, be sure to sign up for our eNewsletter and go to our Plucky Knitter app so you are always up-to-date on events and news.
Warmly,

Saving the Best for Last – The Last IG of 2015 is Here!

Can it really be mid-December next week? I keep hearing it, seeing it, and saying it, but I still have a hard time believing it. While we’ve been at the barn with shipping, dyeing and designing, time has been marching right along!

In between packing and shipping over the last few months, we’ve been taking inventory, pulling out some oldies that are certainly goodies and setting them aside for you. I’ve been holding back some fun, saving up for a special time and that time is now – it’s time to pull it all out for our very last IG Update of 2015 (can you believe it?)!

And, to make this update an extra special and fun time, we’re making it a two-part update so as many as possible can join in on the fun! We hope you’ll join us on Friday, December 11th at 9:00 a.m. EST and again on Sunday, December 13th at 7:00 p.m. EST in the Plucky Knitter Etsy Shop!

We will absolutely have a healthy dose of our current favorites, too (Snug family of bases, I’m looking at you!). Have you seen the adorable hat Knitterella released this week? Two skeins of Snug or Bulky and you are warm and stylin’ in no time. Hayley and I had so much fun this weekend playing around with some really unexpected combinations of Snug Worsted in our “Conversationalist Hat”. If you want quick and multiple knits out of your single skeins of your favorite Plucky worsted base, this is your hat! Just one 3 skein mystery worsted/aran kit will get you three hats!
There will surely be some seldom seen colorways…Do you remember Cherries On The Mall, Forward In Flats, What A Punk and Top Hat? And, kits! You guys love your kits and we love putting them together for you. It has been a while since we’ve offered pattern specific kits, but we’ll also be sure to have plenty of Mystery kits available for the Conversationalist Hat, Alpine Trail, and Bradway to offer as well!
We’ll have something for everyone in this IG. We’ll have old friends, new friends, sweater quantities, kits, and even some rare single or very limited numbers of skeins of one color on one base. We hope to see you at the update this Friday, December 11th at 9:00 a.m. EST and again on Sunday, December 13th at 7:00 p.m. EST at the Plucky Knitter Etsy Shop!

An important note:
Since all of the yarn available in Friday’s & Sunday’s update (and all other subsequent RTS or IG updates) has been carefully inventoried, dyed, and is ready to be shipped the following Tuesday, we will no longer be able to accommodate requests for cancellations or changes of orders. Please be absolutely certain that you fully intend to purchase and receive any yarn you check-out with from the update. It is administratively very difficult and impedes shipping times to allow for these changes. Thank you for your understanding!

If you are new to Plucky we invite you to read all about our Updates in the FAQs found HERE. Also, be sure to sign up for our eNewsletter and go to our Plucky Knitter app so you are always up-to-date on events and news.

Warmly,

Snug & Cozy, and Ready-To-Ship!

The end of the year is upon us and I don’t know about you, but I still feel like there’s so much (knitting) to be done before 2015 is over!  I have grand plans for so many projects I’ve had my eye on, but they’ll be bumped into the new year. That’s okay. Right now, as the weather is making its slow turn to winter (snow would be welcome here right now, it just makes the dark, dreary days so much prettier!), I want warm, quick, knits. I want to knit with (and be) Snug & Cozy.  And, clearly you do too based on the polls for this update! We heard you loud and clear.  Snug and Cozy it is!  We’ll certainly have other options too, but Snug will be appearing in all 3 weights and Cozy will be making a rare appearance (and its last appearance for a good while!).  Here’s the best part of this update – it’s all ready to ship!!

That’s right, ready to ship!  Thursday, December 3, at the Plucky Blog, we’ll have all the Snugs, Cozy, and 6 other Plucky bases in a Ready-To-Ship Update.  Oh, and how’s this for exciting?!? This update will be offered as a two-part update, too!  You guys deserve it. Whether you’re planning a single color project or are getting ready to cast on a myriad of hats for friends and family, I hope you’ll find something in this update that will keep you Snug & Cozy through the end of the year and beyond!

Every one of the colorways will be available on each of the following bases:

  • Cozy
  • Primo Fingering
  • Primo Sport
  • Primo Worsted
  • Snug
  • Snug Fingering
  • Snug Worsted
  • Sweater
  • Traveler
  • Trusty

And just for fun, we’ll have MYSTERY options available. These will be 1-skein & 3-skein and you choose your base! As always, we’ll take your color wishes into account, so be sure to include a note for us before you check-out.  If we have it, we’ll do our best to grant your wish!

There’s bound to be something here for everyone!  We hope you will join us on Thursday, December 3, 2015 at 9 am EST and again at 8 pm at the Plucky Blog.

An important note:  Since all of the yarn available in Thursday’s update (and all other subsequent RTS or IG updates) has been carefully inventoried, dyed, and is ready to be shipped the following Tuesday, we will no longer be able to accommodate requests for cancellations or changes of orders.  Please be absolutely certain that you fully intend to purchase and receive any yarn you check-out with from the update.  It is administratively very difficult and impedes shipping times to allow for these changes.  Thank you for your understanding!

A Multiple Choice Update!

We love gradients. We love cowls. We love choices! This update is going to feature all 3!Are you a gradient lover too? If you are, we have an exciting new design to share with you. Michele Wang’s new cowl, Wollman Rink is a perfect fit for working with gradient color schemes.  This slip-stitch colorwork cowl has quickly become a favorite of mine.  Do you have a blanket in mind but you want to add extra colors and skeins to build on a gradient you’ve already put together?  Or are you just ready to cast-on all of the new hats and gorgeous sweaters coming out for the winter season?  You can!  Here are the nuts & bolts of this update:

  • (5) color (6 skein) fingering weight kits for Michele Wang’s brand new Wollman Rink Cowl will be available.
  • (5) skein Gradient kits in fingering, sport, worsted or bulkier bases. We like options!
  • Pre-order any quantity you’d like of the available colors and bases that are in the kits. Basically, it’s a regular Blog update, too.
  • And to top it off it will be a 2-part update, at 2 different times so as to accommodate as many as possible.

We are so excited about Wollman Rink, with its color play, gorgeous texture and timeless good looks, reminiscent of the venue for which it’s named. Whether you lace up your skates and take to the ice or watch from the sidelines with a steaming mug of something hot, Wollman Rink is the perfect accessory.

To help Michele celebrate the release of her pattern and upcoming Gauge and Tension Plucky trunk show this weekend, Hayley and I have put together a collection of fingering weight kits that we think are particularly fun and promise to be ever so pretty.  Choose from gradients or play with color to create your own perfect cowl.  The pattern will be available in Michele’s Ravelry shop beginning Friday, November 6 and she’s even offering 10% off through Sunday!

And, we’ve heard your requests for more gradient kits, and we are happy to oblige!  In addition to the fingering kits, we will also have sport, worsted and bulkier (5) skein kits available.

I think it bears repeating that every color and base available in a kit is also available for pre-order in the quantity you want!  Do you need a Quadri to go with your Wollman Rink?  Pick up an extra skein of Bello Worsted or Snug Worsted, or even Scholar, and you’re good to go!

Before every update, please be sure to pop into the wishlist thread to let us know what colors and bases you are shopping for.  This is such a great starting point for us in putting together update offerings of bases, single colors, collages and gradients.  Then, we will post them in the locked update thread so you can easily scroll through to see what combos are speaking to Hayley and me!

Please join us on Friday, November 6 at 12 p.m. EST and again on Sunday, November 8 at 8 p.m. EST on the Plucky Blog for this multiple choice update!  Here’s a recap of what you will find:

Wollman Rink Cowl kits:

  • (6) skein fingering kits. Each kit will contain (2) skeins of a MC, (4) different skeins of CCs, in the same base and will be the needed yardage to knit Wollman Rink. Please note that the pattern is sold separately, in Michele’s Rav store with a 10% discount Friday, Saturday and Sunday of this weekend.

Bases available:

  • Cashmere
  • Feet
  • Oxford 2.0
  • Primo Fingering
  • Single (on back-order but available)
  • Snug Fingering

Gradient Kits

  • (5) skein gradient kits.  Each kit will contain 5 different colors, on the same base, forming a gradient for a project(s) of your choosing.

Bases available:

  • Each of the fingering bases noted above as well as
  • Bello Worsted
  • Cachet
  • COZY
  • Primo Sport
  • Scholar (original)
  • Snug Worsted

Standard Pre-Orders

  • Any of the listed colors, on any of the listed bases, in any amount you want! No need to limit yourself to one of the kits that we build; here is a chance to gather a sweater quantity of your choice, or select single colors to knit hats for the family.

This is going to be a fun one!  An important note:  This is one of the last blog updates that will ship prior to 12/23/2015.  If you’re looking for yarn to gift or gifts to knit, now’s your chance!  If you are new to Plucky we invite you to read all about our Blog Updates in the FAQs found HERE.

Fall Back Update

We are so excited to celebrate the launch of our newest Plucky Collection with not one, but a two-part FALL BACK Blog Update!

Blog UpdateSunday, September 20th, 8:00 pm EDT 
and Monday, September 21st, 9:00 am EDT

We hope our Fall Back Collection has been of inspiration to you as you browse Ravelry and arrange your queue for your fall knitting plans. If you are anything like me, you have a serious case of “cast-on-itis” for all things fall. One must be prepared, right?! We hope the collection along with the new colorways and new bases, and even kit opportunities in this two-part update will help you solidify your fall knitting plans so you’re ready to go when the cool weather hits.

You’ve already been a huge help to me in planning this update by sharing your wishes in our Wishlist Thread! I love to hear what you’re hoping for and what you need to complete that must-have project. Please be sure to keep sharing (I’ve been known to add a last minute colorway, or kit…or a few!)! You’ve spoken and this update is calling for the newest Plucky colorway additions and kits. I can’t wait to share with you the kits for Bonfire, Omena, and Peak Color!

Just a few of the colorways, including the latest additions to our Plucky line-up, are shown here, but be sure to keep an eye on our Update and Announcement thread where you’ll find the full list of color ways and kits available for the update evolve! 

Because Bonfire is knit using both a strand of Oxford and a strand of Sophisticate held together, these kits will be offered as 1-color kits and your yarn will come on two bases.

Kits to make a 3-color Omena in Scholar or Scholar 2.0 will be available.

Peak Color kits (2-color and 5-color options) are available in Snug Fingering, Primo Fingering, Cashmere or Bello. And, of course, a mystery option just for fun!
